Turn In Students of Concern to the Behavior Assessment Team

A reliable indicator that the free marketplace of ideas has been replaced by an authoritarian echo chamber in which deviation from establishment dogma is not allowed is that students are encouraged to report thought criminals to officials:

[T]he dean’s office of Utah Valley University, a public institution located in the north-central part of Utah, distributed a guidance letter to all faculty encouraging them to report to the school’s Behavior Assessment Team any students who use “inappropriate language,” are “argumentative,” or who speak “loudly.”

The letter, titled “Recognizing and Responding to Students of Concern,” was provided to The College Fix by a professor at Utah Valley. …

The professor who provided the memo to The Fix said it was distributed one day after an administrator told faculty at a back-to-school meeting that if they heard a statement that made Utah Valley University seem “less inclusive,” that statement should also be reported to the Behavior Assessment Team.

“I’m afraid that this Behavior Assessment Team is a bias response team in disguise,” said the professor, who asked to remain anonymous to avoid professional retribution.

“Bias” is a synonym for “thought crime.”

“Yes, even in a deep-red state at a university in one of the most conservative counties in America, faculty are afraid to speak their minds publicly if their opinions aren’t 100 percent politically correct,” the professor told The Fix.

The scholar added he sees the Behavior Assessment Team as “a tool of intimidation instead of a tool to foster inclusion.”

Most will find it more prudent to keep their non-leftist views to themselves than to risk being identified to the Behavior Assessment Team as a Student of Concern.

On tips from Stormfax and J.



  • Wilberforce

    Simple. One word. “No”. Ignore them and go abut your business.

    If they choose to escalate things, theACLJ and F.I.R.E.would gladly tangle with these petty control freaks.

    “Behavior Assessment Team.” The name even sounds Stalinist.

  • Easy Way #6

    Behavior Assessment is newspeak for brainwashing and compliance.

    “You’re not in trouble. As a community we are concerned for your wellbeing and want to make sure you feel accepted and included.”

  • Easy Way #6

    The Stalinist Behavior Assessment teams carried rifles and offered their clients a cigarette and a blindfold before being assessed.

    We should assume this only applies to the melanin deficient

  • Easy Way #6

    This is aimed as much at the profs as students. Imagine a prof being accused of insufficient social conscience and insensitivity because he did NOT report a student who had been reported by another faculty member! He would be a tolerator of injustice and a supporter of speech-violence!

  • Easy Way #6

    You must be guilty if you are reported to Behavior Assessment.

    Your question indicates that you need to have a conversation with the BA Team.

    Behavior Assessment Team, i.e. The Gestapo.

    “Make America safe for totalitarianism!”

    I think that means “Death to all white Christian heterosexual males”, if I understand it right.

    Still think they are “snowflakes”? They are the future frontline shock troops in the coming Bolshevik terror. The last time they murdered somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 Million mostly European Christians, the same enemy they spew abject hatred against now. 100 Million is a 9/11 body count being exacted every single day for 91 years – let that number sink in. 91 years of 9/11s to equal the death totals their idols exacted against our grandparents – and they are planning on topping that with us.

    Or the East German STASI – who had so many civilian informants it was if 1/2 the country were part of the secret police.

    I think I see a pattern here.

    Too little too late.
    Why not be proactive and get rid of these administrators and faculty?

  • Wilberforce

    Ideally, yes, but just in the meantime. I really do feel sorry for the students, though…

    Remember when the purpose of universities was to educate? Good times….
